are these not sold in 25pound buckets anymore?

Asked by HomeDepotCustomer January 22, 2021

Answer

I have not found these in 25lb containers on the web site or in the store for some time now (only 5lb containers). While the web site shows them they are not in stock and cant be ordered. My best advice would be to talk to someone at the pro desk to see if they can get them for you but I would not hold out much hope I'm about to install about 500ft off fencing and would like to get the screws I need in a larger quantity too.

Can I get the pull strength and the sheer strength for these screws?

Answer

I don’t know what your project is but here is some useful information regarding your question. Deck screws are not designed to resist shear which is the force you apply to them in many framing applications. Plain nails don't have a lot of resistance to withdrawal (up to 75 Lbs.) but a lot of shear strength (up to 115 Lbs.) Withdrawal for a screw can be up to 4 times stronger than a nail but even construction screws designed to meet framing code don’t have as strong a shear strength as a framing nail.

“improved” version is worthless
“Improved” version absolutely sucks. It’s horrible, does not pull the two pieces of wood together. The screw just keeps spinning. Bring back the old version, which was perfect!!! If you want to pre-drill every hole, buy it, otherwise look at other brands. I am so disappointed as I bought a lot of them and I used to rave about this screw using it for everything outdoors and indoors. Picture shows “improved” version on left, with different thread pattern that does not create a tight connection anymore.

Broken screws
The screws work OK, but the problem is over half of them have a broken over the last two years. I have to go back over them every now and then and re-tighten the screws and replace broken screws. They say it is a lifetime warranty? How do you get a warranty?. I do not recommend the screws.

Painted and sharp as a tack, this screw is a great fastener, whether building a deck or fixing the fence. It's almost all I use. Forget the nails; this fastener holds tight and should the wood shrink or I need to under and redo my work, no more pulling out hard nails and breaking them. Unscrew the joint and re-fasten. They're great! I've used these screws on the two decks that I built in Clifton, Colorado and I've used these fasteners on the Cedar fence that I built in Longview, Washington. No problems! Great product!
